Scottish anchorages

Fladda

There is a surprisingly good anchorage out of the tide, at least on the flood, just north of the island from where you can dinghy across to the old landing slip. And then explore the island. Not that there is much to explore. The large walled garden is unsurprisingly very overgrown, and the lighthouse cottages rather run down although somebody clearly owns them and may even sleep there from time to time. Of course the views all around are great. Inexplicably - to me at least, sometime in the 20th century, the name of the island changed from Pladda to Fladda.
